Regulatory decisions update
The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) advises that it has recently made the following regulatory decisions:
Cancellation of registration as a provider of vocational education and training (VET) services:
- Enterprise Improvement Solutions Australia Pty Ltd atf Enterprise Improvement Solutions Australia Trust (RTO number 40894; trading as Enterprise Improvement Solutions Australia Pty Ltd). Decision to take effect from 26 May 2017
- Gateway College of Technology Pty Ltd (RTO number 41028; trading as Gateway College of Technology and Gateway College Australia). Decision to take effect from 29 May 2017
- Global Institute of Learning Pty Ltd (RTO number 41328; trading as International Institute of Commerce and Technology. Decision to take effect from 5 June 2017.
- Karl Dyble Pty Ltd (RTO number 52617; trading as Advantage Training Australia). Decision to take effect from 26 May 2017.
ASQA—the national VET regulator—has taken these decisions following regulatory scrutiny of each training provider. ASQA contends that each provider has not operated consistently with the applicable requirements of the VET Quality Framework, which is a condition of registration.
Training providers subject to an adverse regulatory decision have the right to have the decision reviewed. A provider may, in certain circumstances, apply to have ASQA itself reconsider its decision. In all cases, providers can apply to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) to have ASQA’s decision reviewed. More information about review options is available on the ASQA website.
During a review or reconsideration process, the provider may seek a stay of the decision or an extension of the date the decision takes effect which permits the provider to continue to operate until the review process is finalised.
The ASQA website contains up-to-date information on the status of any review processes. It is advisable to check the website to obtain current information concerning the status of regulatory decisions.
